  • Patent number: 5717699
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for analyzing a programmable logic device (PLD) that provides access to internal nodes of the circuit. The method and apparatus in accordance with the present invention uses a shadow programmable logic device to emulate the target PLD while coupling input and output terminals of the shadow PLD so as to provide more information about the target PLD than can be obtained from the target PLD itself. Also, the shadow PLD can implement internal stimulus and/or response functions to provide improve analyzing capability not possible with the target PLD alone.

  • Patent number: 4495599
    Abstract: A logic state analyzer monitors an ongoing succession of logic states occurring in a collection of n-many digital signals, and stores in a memory a set of logic states selected from the ongoing succession. A logic state is any one of the 2.sup.n -1 possible patterns the n-many digital signals may exhibit. The memory is of some convenient fixed number of locations, and once the memory is filled the oldest stored logic states are overwritten as the newest logic states are stored. Various storage qualification criteria may be specified, in which case an individual logic state is not stored unless it meets those criteria. Upon recognition of a specified trigger condition in the succession of logic states the logic state analyzer stores an operator selectable number of additional logic states, after which the monitoring and storing of logic states ceases and the stored contents of the memory are displayed. The trigger condition may be the detection of a designated sequence of selected logic states.

Various storage qualification criteria may be specified, in which case an individual state is not stored unless the state meets those criteria. Upon recognition of a specified trigger condition in the succession of states the logic state analyzer stores an operator selectable number of additional states. The trigger condition may be as simple as the occurrence of a single specified state or may be as complex as the satisfaction of a sequence of specified states. The resulting collectivity of states stored in the memory may be termed a captured trace.

  • Patent number: 4479197
    Abstract: The operating modes and parameters of a logic state analyzer are selected by user interaction with a menu displayed upon a CRT. At the highest level of control the user may specify which menu is of interest, should there be more than one. The selected menu is displayed and contains mode selection fields whose labels indicate the various modes that are presently selected. Different modes are selected by positioning a cursor to the associated selection field and then pressing a mode selection key. Each such activation causes the next mode in a sequence of modes, associated with that particular field, to be the selected mode of operation. A descriptive label or phase corresponding to the selected mode is displayed as part of the selection field containing the cursor.

  • Patent number: 4455624
    Abstract: Ongoing succession of states occurring in a collection of digital signals is monitored by a logic state analyzer which stores either all such states or a selected subset thereof meeting certain qualification criteria. The memory into which the states are stored is updated with oldest stored states being overwritten as the newest states are stored, the collectivity of which may be termed a captured trace. The above-mentioned qualification and sequential criteria are termed a trace specification. The utility of such a trace in a logic state analyzer is enhanced by allowing the user to divide the collection of digital signals into groups of related signals, assign symbolic labels to the groups, and indicate a radix for each group. Such division, assignment and indication may be termed a format specification. Subsequent trace specifications as well as the displayed or printed form of the trace itself then incorporate the format specification.

  • Patent number: 4445192
    Abstract: A logic state analyzer monitors the ongoing succession of states occurring in a collection of digital signals, and stores in a memory either all such states or a selected subset thereof meeting certain qualification criteria. The oldest stored states are overwritten as the newest states are stored. Upon recognition of some trigger condition the logic state analyzer will subsequently store a preselected number of additional states, the collectivity of which may be termed the captured trace. The utility of such a trace in a logic state analyzer is enhanced by equipping the analyzer with a counting mechanism selectively responsive to a high speed clock signal or a programmable state detector. In the former case the counter operates as a timer whose value may represent either the elapsed time between consecutive states in the trace or between each state in the trace and an origin along a time axis.

  • Patent number: 4373193
    Abstract: A logic state analyzer stores into a data acquisition memory only state data meeting preselected qualification state criteria chosen to weed out state data not of interest among the totality of states occuring within a collection of digital signals. The data acquisition memory retains only the last m-many states stored therein. A selectable integer k, o.ltoreq.k.ltoreq.m, determines how many additional storage operations are performed for qualified state data following the detection of a preselected trigger condition. The actual number of states occurring in the collection of digital signals after the trigger condition but before the storage of the kth qualified data state can be many times the value of k. Qualifying the state data prior to storage allows a modest size data acquisition memory to do the work of a much larger memory and spares the user the task of sorting through much state data known not to be of interest.

  • Patent number: 4303987
    Abstract: A general purpose logic state analyzer selectively stores, formats and displays a digital signal representing a sequence of data states input thereto and provides a graphical display of the stored data states and a count of selected events occurring intermediate to the occurrence of the data states stored. Selective storage of the input data states is provided by comparing the input data states to a preselected sequence of first qualifier state conditions and enabling the storage of input data states in response to the satisfaction of the preselected sequence. Storage is further qualified by storing only data states which individually meet one of a preselected set of second qualifier state conditions.

  • Patent number: 3976864
    Abstract: A device is disclosed which converts a digital signal or bit stream into a digital signature repesentative of the digital signal by means of a feedback shift register. The apparatus may be used to identify and characterize digital signals at various test points in an apparatus for testing purposes. Signatures for digital signals from properly operating circuits can be recorded in a variety of fashions for later comparison with signatures of digital signals from circuits under test. The comparison of the signatures enables a person using the apparatus to determine whether the circuit under test is operating properly and, if it is not, to locate the fault in many instances. The apparatus may also be used to examine digital signals to enable identification of transient errors.
